PANOSE是一种依照字体外观来进行分类的方法。对于未知的字体,可以透过PANOSE体系将字体的外观特征整理并且与其他字体归类比较。

PANOSE定义了几个范围:Latin Text, Latin Script, Latin Decorative, Iconographic, Japanese Text, Cyrillic Text, Hebrew。PANOSE的原形在1985年由 Benjamin Bauermeister 所开发,当时一个字体由七个16进制数字所定义,现在则发展为十个。这每一个数字都定义一种视觉外观的单位,像是笔划的粗细或是字体衬线的样式。

 

图:Family,Serif Style和Proportion选项由Windows系统用来进行字体选择和匹配。

举例来说,Times New Roman字体,依照PANOSE系统的定义如下:

Family Kind 2 (Latin text)
Serif Style 2 (Cove)
Weight 6 (Medium)
Proportion 3 (Modern)
Contrast 5 (Medium low)
Stroke variation 4 (Transitional)
Arm style 5 (Straight arms)
Letterform 2 (Round)
Midline 3 (Standard)
X-height 4 (Large)

这十个选项的含义以及可以取的值(括号中给出)在下面列出。这些是最通常的情形,其“family”为2,Text and Display。(如果这第一个数字取值不同,那么剩余九个数字的含义也随之不同)。
